JAI #266 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink it's time for a colour challenge! Nikki has come up with a lovely colour combo that I'm sure will delight you. 

Bold stripes is what popped into my mind and so this is what I ended up with.

One to show you the flowery dimension.

The inside.

I simply layered strips of Night of Navy over a white card base eyeballing an even spacing With a bold base I needed something bold on top. First a big scrolly sentiment, then a big flowery cluster and lots of gold foliage. To give the flowers some more depth I sponged Pink Pirouette ink over the centres of the white embossed detail.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous creations. Hope you can join us.
